  1. Thanks for sharing, Chris! Maybe some year I'll venture to north country and take in the show.

  2. Thanks for giving us a chance to see something from this Model Show, Chris @modelairplanemaker

  3. Thanks for sharing, Chris!
    Looks like you had a wonderful time there!

  4. The Warplane Heritage is truly a special place, and having brought back the model show, I hope they can get their airshow up and running again. Home to one of only two flying Lancasters, and other classics still flying. Apparently their Avenger has now done test flying, and just waiting for paperwork.

    The show was a lot of fun. So glad to see them back in action.

    Great video Chris.

  5. Great video Chris, lots of eye candy on the tables to view. Trust the vendors had a good day as well. Thanks for sharing. BTY, had a chance to see that Lancaster fly several years ago at 'A Gathering of Mustangs and Legends" in Columbus, Ohio. Impressive comes to mind.,

  6. Thanks Chris.

    I attended as well. Spoke with a few guys. Great show.

    I was going to enter my B-25J but didn't get it finished in time. Next year though.

  7. Looks like a great day out, thanks for posting this.
